About Me

Hi  everybody,

Just a update on my 1939  Military Tourer, the engine number, is 1A 26847 and the colour  is, of course, green. It should soon become a "rolling chassis". I hope to put the engine in during the next few weeks. (warmer dry weather would help!) 

Can anyone tell me if there is some hidden device that holds the steering wheel on.!! I still cannot remove mine!

Also does  any owner have details of the exhaust, I only have the spares list to go by.

Regards Monty

Engine in, exhaust fitted , fuel tank and line in,now it is a proper rolling chassis and the engine runs fine. If I put a seat in I can drive it up the garden !!
But now I have to start on the body..oh dear..
